    does it. The fact that a local bank purchased the remaining Packer tickets so that the local Wisconsin fans can watch the game in the comfort of their homes is a good thing. It doesn't matter who did it.

    However, as a SF 49er fan I hope the 49ers win.

      ...like an act that makes the game available to everyone and thus helps the 99%, who can't afford to go to the game but who can afford to watch it on television.

      And yeah, I'd wager that the subzero cold is the main factor keeping folks from going to the game. If I were a diehard Packers fan in GB, I know I'd think twice about paying a few hundred bucks to watch a football game here when I could see the game from my warm couch with a cold beer instead.
